Cinefamily's Most Outrageous Kills 2012

100kills_newsite
10/31/2012 - 10:15PM

From the golden age of goremastery to the innovative new technologies of modern effects wizards, cinema is littered with the bodies of the awesomely dispatched — and cold-blooded murder, in the hands of innovative filmmakers who present it in ways we’ve never seen before, can be a heavenly fine art. Tonight, in a show originated at Austin, Texas’s Alamo Drafthouse, we’ll be celebrating the absolute finest in on-screen annihilation with a non-stop nightmare of intestine-ripping, head-bursting, unrepentant baby-eating and other crimson-soaked savagery! This night is intended for the most severe and iron-stomached bloodhounds around, and we accept absolutely no responsibility for lost lunches. Wimps and weekend horrormeisters, leave the hall; if you can’t stand the meat, stay out of the kitchen. See all you deathbeasts in the murderpit!!!!

THE ACADEMY'S TRAILER TROVE: It Came From The Vaults - Classic Horror Trailers From The Academy Film Archive

A wild and artful preview revue!

10/31/2012 - 7:30PM
Presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences

The best movie trailers have always been wonderful, inspiring self-contained works in their own right, with a legacy extending far beyond their original sell-by dates. Tonight’s show — the start of a new biannual program co-presented by the Academy Film Archive, home of the largest 35mm trailer collection in the world — features a snappy selection of the wildest and most artful horror movie pre-show entertainment from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s. As tension builds and shadows wind, the larger-than-life monsters, undulating titles, and shocking cuts found within these classic trailers add up to an equal amount of camp thrills and genuine weirdness — and we couldn’t be more excited. Show curated entirely from the Packard Humanities Institute Collection at the Academy Film Archive.

TV Tuesdays: Ghostwatch

A supernatural TV landmark!

“A supernatural TV landmark” — SFX Magzine

America has Orson Welles’ infamous radio broadcast of War of the Worlds — and Britain has the equally scandalous TV special Ghostwatch. Broadcast only once by the BBC (on Halloween ‘92), this truly effective piece of televised hauntology hoaxed an entire nation to its terrified knees, causing the Beeb’s switchboards to light up with tens of thousands of frantic calls in a single night. What exactly caused everyone, from elderly pensioners to macho street toughs, to freak out? A newsmagazine-style scripted mockumentary, presented “live” but taped weeks earlier, on the topic of ghost hunting — which starts out very light-hearted, but as the program wears on, constricts its vice-like grip on the viewer by using shockingly realistic, proto-Blair Witch haunted-house spookery. From the casual banter between the on-air presenters (who include Red Dwarf star Craig Charles, and real-life BBC host Michael Parkinson), to the use of thermographic cameras in an on-the-spot news setting, every minutely planned detail sets the stage for Ghostwatch’s brilliant blending of the real and the contrived. See this 20th Anniversary screening only with trusted friends — for who knows, you might not make it out of the theater alive!

The Tingler (presented in "Percepto"!)

One of our fave Halloween traditions!

10/30/2012 - 7:30PM

One of the concluding events of our crazy Nightmare City month-long celebration is one of Cinefamily’s most favorite annual Halloween traditions: the spine-tingling horror of The Tingler, William Castle’s weirdo masterpiece of gimmickry about a lobster-shaped monster that feeds on terror within the human body! Aside from being the first film to use LSD as a plot device, the original theatrical run was presented in “Percepto,” whereby theater patrons were administered buzzer shocks in their seats, to simulate the monster’s attack. The result, of course, was giddy insanity, as star Vincent Price’s voice urges patrons to “scream for your lives!” Best of all, The Tingler features a major subplot based on the Silent Movie Theatre itself and its original owners, the Hamptons. Feel a tingle up your spine as you watch these scenes set in the very location where you are sitting — and maybe a tingle on your tuchas when we shock you Castle-style with real wired seats!
Dir. William Castle, 1959, 35mm, 82 min.

THIS EVENT IS 21+.

Halloween is truly hallowed at Cinefamily — we opened five years ago this week, and we like to mark every Cinebirthday with an unforgettable, all-night audio-visual blowout. This year’s bash brings a tribute to the cool, creepy and alien analog sounds of New Wave horror — it’s a slash-happy soiree of murder you can dance to. For one dark, dizzy night, the theater transforms into a haunted, pulsing nightclub where gothy Berlin vamps, knife-wielding New Wavers and Italo-Disco freaks can come together to cut a rug — and each other! Supplying the LIVE sensuous sounds of slaughter, we’ve got the legendary Claudio Simonetti of Italian soundtrack overlords Goblin performing a solo set, neon noir visionary Tearist rescoring a remixed version of the ‘80s German new wave rocker-stalker Cinefamily favorite Der Fan, and Dadaist documentarian of the digital underbelly James Ferraro taking an aural hatchet to VHS treasure Boardinghouse. But that’s just the tip of the steak knife! We’re also spooking-out the theater like never before, with optical illusions and holographic nightmare visions, DJs, Snap Yourself!’s haunted photo booth, psycho karaoke, food trucks, booze and some extra-secret surprises. It’s time to ritually sacrifice yourself to the analog gods!

- 7:15pm: world premiere of brand-new short film 6:14, starring Ethan Embry & Michael Ironside (director Toby Wilkins in person!)
- 7:30pm: DJ set by White Car!

Co-presented by the USC School of Cinematic Arts

Before 1998, there’s a good chance that the rest of the world had no idea that Japanese horror films existed — but, once Hideo Nakata unleashed his wildly successful Ringu (aka The Ring) into the cultural bloodstream, the entire global horror realm was forever altered. Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: a group of high school students find an unmarked VHS tape in a creepy cabin. Once they fire it up, they see a low-fi jag of horror images wrapped in a curse: seven days after watching, you will die. It’s impossible to overstate the impact Ringu has had on modern horror of the last fifteen years; with a new ‘J-horror’ vocabulary (stringy-haired ghost chicks, crazy camera angles, creepy sound design), Japanese knockoffs, U.S. remakes and cheap foreign cash-ins were quick to proliferate, but it’s only when you see Ringu on the big screen, in a crowded theater with no easy exit, that its sheer power snakes around your neck and strangles you with its rancid fingers. This is one of the few films truly deserving of a “piss your pants” scary designation. You have been warned. All the way from Japan, Hideo Nakata will be here at the Cinefamily for a Q&A after the film!
Dir. Hideo Nakata, 1998, 35mm, 96 min.

Current Magic Castle “Stage Magician of the Year”, Rob Zabrecky presents a Magic Revue influenced by Edward Gorey & Vaudevillian Prestidigitation.

MAGIC Magazine raved, “Zabrecky’s magic could easily be the plot line of a Stephen King novel, if Stephen King wrote comedy.” An evening of cross-pollinated magic and reverie from one of LA’s most fascinating natives. With Very Special Musical Accompaniment by Kristian Hoffman. Directed by Jack Lovick. “A Night of Zabrecky” was premiered and developed at the Steve Allen Theater under the Artistic Direction of Amit Itelman.

POTLUCK EVENT: Home Movie Day 2012

Bring your 8mm to watch with us!
homemovieday_website
10/20/2012 - 12PM

NOTE: This event starts with a finger-food potluck luncheon; things like bags of chips and drinks are not encouraged. Impress us!

It’s the 10th anniversary of a proud archival film tradition — and now the legendary Home Movie Day comes to Cinefamily, so bring your family films and amateur epics! An annual celebration of amateur films and filmmaking at many local venues worldwide, Home Movie Day provides an opportunity for individuals and families to both see and share their own home movies with an audience in their community. It’s a chance to discover why it’s important to care about and how to care for these precious films. Even though many people have had their amateur films transferred to DVD, original films (and the equipment required to view them) can long outlast any version on DVD or other digital media. Not only that, but contrary to the stereotype of the faded, scratched, and shaky home movie image, the original films are often carefully shot in beautiful, vibrant color—which may not be captured in a lower-resolution video transfer. Free admission — no ticket required! So, bring your 8mm, Super-8, 9.5mm, 16mm, 28mm and VHS home movies on film to view with us — it’s fun and sometimes even historic! For more info, visit www.homemovieday.com/losangeles!

The Devil Rides out (brand-new HD restoration!)

Christopher Lee vs. Satan!
devilridesout_website2
10/19/2012 - 7:30PM
Co-presented by Hammer Films

A career high point for everyone involved, The Devil Rides Out represents everything fantastic about Hammer Films’s hyper-stylized catalogue of films. Wisely cast against type, Christopher Lee has one of his finest roles as an urbane gentleman whose knowledge of the black arts comes in handy when his good friend falls under the hypnotic influence of diabolical priest Mocata. The Devil Rides Out is primarily Lee’s show, and he’s exactly the man anyone would want on their side in a battle against evil — however, future James Bond bad guy Charles Gray is also outstanding as the fearsome and crafty adversary. Credentials behind the scenes are equally up to par, with the legendary Richard Matheson (“I Am Legend”) skillfully adapting Dennis Wheatley’s occult novel (while wisely retaining the 1930s setting) and director Terence Fisher obviously using all of his formidable directorial skills to deliver some of horror’s best setpieces. The suspenseful and frightening passage in which our heroes are confined within a holy circle, and assaulted by demonic forces, is as good as ’60s horror gets. Brand-new HD restoration!
Dir. Terence Fisher, 1968, HD presentation, 95 min.

"Heartworn Highways" + live set by Scott Kelly of Neurosis!

Seventies C&W heaven, and Scott Kelly live!
scottkelly_website
10/2/2012 - 8PM
Presented by FYF Fest

Heartworn Highways – 8:00pm
Heartworn Highways is for music lovers that like to jam tunes, get wasted and watch dogs bark and trucks pass by, for people who like hyper-analyze Charlie Daniels’ wardrobe. Check out Steve Earle (just past being a teenager) rail on “Mercenary Song”, follow Townes Van Zandt on a guided shotgun tour of the gargantuan rabbit holes on his property, then pay attention as David Allen Coe chews out some prisoners and delivers them gospel. God bless James Szalapski for crafting Heartworn (shot in ’75, released in ’81), because today’s audience is more receptive than the one that existed during its bleak, brief original theatrical release. At that time, the music was labeled New Country, but the reality is that this is country music at its finest, teetering on the edge of relevancy and engaging the audience on their terms, dixie-fried, southbound and down.
Heartworn Highways Dir. James Szalapski, 1981, digital presentation, 92 min.

Scott Kelly live set! – approx. 10:00pm
“As simple as the beauty from his acoustic constructions seemed, Kelly proved his mastery over the instrument with complex rhythms, accented with neck-bending, alternate tuning and other tricks that added a cold heaviness to both the songs and the room. With this molten, slow solo material, Kelly may have brought sludge metal to an unplugged existence — without sacrificing its characteristic thickness.” — Billy Thieme, Hey Reverb

After the Heartworn Highways screening, Scott Kelly (guitarist/vocalist for experimental post-hardcore band Neurosis) will hit the Cinefamily stage for a live acoustic set!
